Is David Cameron protecting his own back?

As the UK government looks to introduce up to £60 billion of budget cuts in the short to medium term David Cameron has enlisted the help of the people to identify areas where potential savings can be made. However, is David Cameron involving the people so that they can just protect his own back?

Depending upon which area of the political arena you stand there is an opinion that David Cameron is basically attempting to shift the blame from his coalition government to the people in the event of a backlash in the future. However, there are those who believe that David Cameron is using his diplomatic skills to the limit and bringing the public on board so that they fully understand exactly what is going on.

Initial reactions from the public suggest that even if they are involved in identifying potential savings, if the savings impact upon their lives directly then, as we have mentioned on numerous occasions, this could make David Cameron unelectable at the next election. However, this is certainly a chance which David Cameron is willing to take and one which on the face of it has a number of pros and cons and could potentially see him go down in history as one of the greats.
